Hi..
The problem is i accidentally booked my flight to Bolivia from Ciudad del esta instead of foz du iguassu. I am an Australian citizen and basically just wanna go through the border in order to catch my flight to Bolivia.

Hello, I am a solo female traveller and would like to visit Paraguay to see what it is like. Unfortunately everyone I am talking to is giving it very bad reviews, but these are people who havent actually been there. Can anyone who has been there offer me any advice on travelling in Paraguay?
Thanks, Claire

Asuncion

December 2015

The two words that best describe Asuncion are "seedy" and "shabby". I arrived at the chaos of the main bus terminal and stayed in the Zona Central, seat of national government and central business district. Very disappointing. Wandering around is OK. Asuncion does not seem particularly unsafe. There is conspicuous police presence but it is mostly bored guys standing around talking on their cell phones or smoking. Parks are all in disrepair. Infrastructure is 2nd world…

I went from Brazil (Foz do Iguazu) across the bridge to Ciudad del Este (CDE). There are local buses that run to the bridge where you can walk across. I was in a hurry so took a taxi. Lots of locals walk to shop for consumer electronics in CDE and don't stop at immigration (so the lines are short). Brazilian immigration on one end of the bridge; Paraguayan on the other. Driver waited while I got the exit/entrance stamps. A couple of minutes each. BE SURE to have a Paraguayan visa before…

The coach bus terminal in Ciudad del Este is hard to find without local help. Grab a taxi or some reliable friendly driver. All the major companies run their buses from here to points throughout Paraguay (or into Brazil/Argentina). English is limited but you can get by without much Spanish. I was looking for a bus to Asuncion. Pretty much every hour or two during the day; some overnight buses. Cost is $15-20 depending on company and class of service. Some will reserve seats on-line. My…

We're planning to enter Paraguay from Iguazu and then we'd like to visit the Reserva Itabo to find some armadillos. Does anyone know how we can get to the Reserve and if there would be any tours or someone to guide us? (Amd a place to sleep?). Or would it be best to rent a car and go there ourselves? far we can't find a lot of information on it.
Thanks for the info!

Regards,
Loes

Hi all,

I am considering making a visit to the Itaupú dam, preferably from the Paraguayan side, since I am already in Paraguay. Has anyone done this? The Paraguayan tourism information is no way near as good as the Brazilean one.
Thanks

Hi everyone,

I am planning to go from Ciudad del Este to Encarnacion in December. I will be staying in Foz do Iguacu and I would like to cross the bridge and catch the bus to Encarnacion very early (7-7:30 am). So the question is - what are the working hours of Paraguayan border? The same question about Brazilian border since I will need their stamp too. And are there buses so early in the morning from CdE to Encarnacion?

Thanks.

Thought I'd write a post about my journey from Asunción, Paraguay to Santa Cruz in Bolivia as when I was planning it a few weeks back I couldn't find any information about doing the journey in this direction and the experience does seem to differ a bit to the more common Santa Cruz to Asunción journey.

Buying tickets:
Plenty of desks were offering the journey upstairs in the asuncion bus terminal but think they actually all book with the same counter as the guy we booked with wandered off to…

Hi All;

My wife and I, semi-retired, working from computers would like two months somewhere warm for about 60 days January through March. We need air conditioning, high speed internet, and, above all, a little cottage or equivalent on the ocean where we can see sunrises or sunsets.

We have a limited budget($100/night) but could spring for a little more for a special place. We just need a place to crash and burn for a couple of months, close to restaurants, cafes and the like.

If you know…
